Inheritance and development
――Proposal of a place to live together with work and housing in the former Kanbara-juku ――

Outline of work

The relationship between living and living before modernization has changed significantly today. Lifestyles are changing and people's values are diversifying. By focusing on traditional housing styles, we thought that it might be possible to present a new way of living that can meet one of today's diversifying lifestyles.

Kanbara Town, Shizuoka City, prospered as a post town during the Edo period, but the population is steadily declining, and the townscape of the post town is fading. In today's world where lifestyles and ways of interacting with people have changed, I think it is necessary to change the form of architecture. The townscape of the post town has an elevation rising parallel to the Tokaido, and the townscape is kept horizontal and maintains a unified landscape. Therefore, we propose a new frame that swings the axis of the building 45 degrees with respect to the Tokaido and supports the Japanese hut with four pillars. By swinging the axis, we will open the architecture to the street and create a new relationship between people and architecture, and propose a richer place to live by the thickness of the four pillars.

A sustainable town by inheriting the townscape, which was a specialty of the post town as the creation of identity in the local society, and presenting a new architectural form in accordance with the changes in lifestyle and the way people interact with each other today. aim.

Trial to Vietnam's urban housing "Layer"
――Development from the laminated beams of traditional wooden architecture ――

Outline of work

The three problems facing Vietnam today are "cultural disruption," "family disintegration," and "house light and thermal environment." The lack of timber and the neglect of traditions are the reason why wall-mounted dwellings that do not fit the hot climate fill the entire country. In the analysis, we discovered the "culture of overlapping designs" of the architectural frame that expresses the dignity of the "family" ancestral platform (buddha) in the cross section, and "environment" in the plane. I found the answer, "overlapping space". The landscape of wall-mounted dwellings in Saigon, southern Vietnam, is not properly related to the climate that once existed. In this corner, we propose an urban housing "layered house" that modernly reorganizes cultural, family, and environmental issues. Obtained by analyzing the relationship between traditional architecture and the climate of Vietnam, while creating a pond and creating wind due to the difference in atmospheric pressure, rainwater usually enters inside but outside when it rains. The superposed space and the superposed design that expresses the dignity of the ancestors have been sublimated into a modern urban house. A "superposition shop" that has both a "superposition space" that suits the Vietnamese climate and a "superposition design" that is sublimated into a bamboo frame asks Vietnam the possibility and importance of tradition.

This completion production is an attempt to keep "things that are too familiar to be seen" regarding the implementation design of clothing stores on Awaji Island. (Scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2019)

This area seems to be a seemingly featureless, ubiquitous suburb with a mixture of various landscapes such as agricultural land, fishing ports, factories, and new housing. However, although there are slight differences, individual information can be read, and it is hard to say that it is "everywhere", and it shows the vividness of the city. We named these landscapes of different scales and purposes in the city "Kakera" and tried to treat them all equally.

I treat "Kakera" as a form and design by combining them. The new meaning (use and quality) created through design will appear in the city as a new form. Then, I designed a building that would make people feel uncomfortable when it was seen as a landscape in the eyes of the residents.

We used 1/100 axome and models for zoning, and mockups with real objects for the material fittings, which are completely different quality tools depending on the purpose. As a result of accumulating designs based on the information possessed by Kakera and the selection of tools, it naturally deviated from the hierarchy of design order by scale, and emerged as a single building in which Kakera was given equal value.

As a designer, Kakera helps me to be skeptical of the theory of architectural design.

Island industry architecture  -New public proposal by Gogo Island / migration promotion facility-

Outline of work

Over the past year, I have had many opportunities to visit remote islands in Japan. I fell in love with the unique culture and the place where the air flows, and wanted to think about the future of the remote islands, which is the epitome of society, at the beginning of this master's design.
It is a proposal of three architectures to make the best use of the attractive resources of the island, to earn money for the entire island, to live, and to build an "island business". Nowadays, the public skeleton that has been applied everywhere due to existing city planning is no longer valid, and it seems that it can only be established in that place, just like the culture unique to the place and the atmosphere of the place that flows only there. I think the role of architects is to rebuild the way of life of the city in the future by rediscovering and building a new and permanent public skeleton.
The life and public skeleton of the island will be reinterpreted by the detonator of accepting yosomono, which accompanies the construction of a new migration promotion facility on Gogo Island, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture. Through the rediscovery of the structure of the island, with the keyword of the community through "living business" that never disappears, we will reconstruct the wholeness of the island, which can only be established in this place, by linking with the existing local resources. To do.

Reconstruction plan for Shirakawa City Central Community Center, Shirakawa City, Fukushima Prefecture, using the existing configuration  -Through analysis of architectural parts and spatial composition in reconstructed architecture-

Outline of work

Public buildings constructed during the period of high economic miracle are under pressure to be rebuilt, renewed and repaired all at once. The convenience of equipment renewal was pursued due to changes in social needs, the life of public facilities was required to be extended due to changes in the population ratio, and the fact that public buildings were responsible for the formation of local culture was forgotten. In the maintenance of public buildings, the survival record before rebuilding is not taken into consideration. On the other hand, the momentum for utilizing existing buildings such as reconstructed buildings is still increasing. Reconstructed architecture presents the social sustainability of architecture and suggests the conservation of the culture and history of the local community. The traditional rebuilding act was to cut off the genealogy of the previously existing building. What is currently required is a rebuilding act that responds to social sustainability of the existing architecture that was responsible for the formation of local culture, that is, a "design method that combines both follow-up and renewal."
With respect to the discontinuous relationship before and after rebuilding that the rebuilding act has, the appearance of the building before rebuilding is defined as the "existing form", and by following this existing form, it is used in the design process. At the same time, we implemented "architectural transparency" by analyzing and adapting the spatial composition operations found in reconstructed architecture. It created an "intermittent relationship" between the existing form, rebuilding, and future expansion and renovation, just as the block where public buildings existed was regenerated. This proposal is also an experiment aimed at developing and presenting a moderate design method that mediates between reconstructed architecture and new construction.

Outline of work

This is a proposal for a new building method to make the most of the attractiveness and historicality of architecture.
Between Shimbashi Station and Yurakucho Station, there is a dark street with few people with an impressive "International Arcade" sign between the lively bars.
It was created during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and was originally created to eliminate dead space for the Olympics. There are also four other places, including Japan's oldest brick arch viaduct and the Tokyo Expressway. Viaducts coexist. There is one place in the surrounding area where it is actively growing and developing, and there is a place where various times have been included. We sought a method for reconstructing such cases.
As a trigger for this, I analyzed the illustrations in the category of retrofuturism, and focused on the speed of each space and the fact that the spaces overlap to create a landscape that gives people who see it a variety of experiences. .. Taking advantage of the multi-layered elevated relationship of the planned site, the building will be partially removed to change the appearance of this building, and new building equipment with a different sense of speed will be added to create a new perspective. Transform into a landscape with.
I worked on this master's design with the hope of showing the attractiveness of architecture that had not been conscious of, and the possibility of leaving it as a new landscape by changing its appearance.

Nostalgic future architecture  Proposal of spatial method that includes multiple layers of time

Outline of work

The temple is a religious facility, but at the same time it has been used by various people as a base for the area. However, in recent years, it has been used only by the Danish believers, and its function as a regional base is being lost. At present, temples that have no people to use and no priests who are guardians are just decaying. This proposal warns against the ideal state of temples, which are only functioning as religious facilities. In designing, the theme was to look not only at the religion but also at the historical value of the temple, to protect them, and to deepen the understanding of religion. Based on this, we decided to make it a facility that can be used by non-Dan believers by giving it a role as an open park while preserving the atmosphere of the precincts and promoting understanding of religion through exhibitions of temple treasures and history. Children play in the precincts, the museum learns about the history of the temple, and the main hall and cemetery hold memorial services for the dead. Various people carry out various activities here, and the place called the temple regains its original role and is inherited as an activity base for the local people.
Through this proposal, we believe that we were able to show the possibility of revival by making the facility functions of the declining temple more versatile in the future.

Study on the public nature of the living temple space  --Prayer Temple Treasure Museum that inherits the memory of Mujuji Temple--

Outline of work

The Shikumen-style private house is one of Shanghai's largest landscapes and an important part of the city's architectural culture.

From the 1990s, urbanization in Shanghai began to progress, and redevelopment and redevelopment were rapidly carried out in the city center aiming for an international metropolis, and along with this, many new buildings were constructed, and apartment houses and roads. Due to the construction such as, the stone warehouse gate was rebuilt or demolished. In the last 20 years, about 40% of the Shikumen building has already been demolished. The stone warehouse gate architecture gradually remained hidden behind the alley.

Looking at the current state of preservation of the Ishikomon architecture, even though the exterior is splendid, there are problems such as aging inside the building, deterioration of the living environment, combined use of the Ishikomon architecture for commercial and residential purposes, and extension in the garden. It is necessary to consider the future conservation and utilization of these stone warehouse gate buildings.

In this study, the current state of use of Shikumen architecture, spatial changes, and changes in the living environment associated with it were investigated in the Shanghai inner ring area where the Shikumen are concentrated. Understand the satisfaction of the living environment with the residents, the evaluation of the current state of the Shikumen Gate, the awareness of preservation, etc., and then study the Shikumen Gate architecture and the preservation and renovation of traditional Shanghai houses, and concretely The purpose is to present a design plan. Select the actual site "Toshibunri" in Shanghai and make a proposal for renovation. By comparing the past and present situations, we will keep the good points of each, make up for the shortages, and continue to study the possibility of using the Ishikomon as a house.

――The site of the stone mine concentrator to a whiskey distillery and accommodations ――

Outline of work

Yasuishi City, Iwate Prefecture, is the birthplace of the modern steel industry. The site of the stone mine concentrator is located at this location. A concentrator is a place where ore and non-ore are concentrated since the time when ore was blasted. The majestic figure on the slope has been dismantled now, but the foundation and retaining wall still remain. The theme of the master's design is to maintain and renew this place, which can be said to be the historical identity of the stone.

For that purpose, it is important how to position this place in the whole city of Sekiishi. I investigated the various possibilities that exist in Sekiishi City and concluded that the function as a "production site" and "new base" is suitable for this place. We propose a whiskey distillery as a "production site". There is natural water that can be collected from mines in Sekiishi City. The port of Sekiishi secures the distribution side, and the abundant wood resources are ideal for barrels and fermenters.

The raw material barley is produced in neighboring Morioka, where Morioka cold noodles are famous. And although the distiller, which is important for whiskey, needs to be made of copper, copper is also mined at the stone mine, and copper ore still exists. By making full use of the resources that exist in Sekiishi City, it is possible to make complete Sekiseki whiskey. In addition, there are many industrial remains in the stone. One of them, Hashino blast furnace, was registered as a World Heritage Site. Many of these remains have problems with access from urban areas. Therefore, we proposed accommodation facilities using the site of the former concentrator and aimed to create a new base.

"Ueno Onshi Park Japan Museum Concept"
-Renovation of existing facilities at the Tokyo National Museum and expansion plan to Ueno Park-

The Tokyo National Museum in Ueno Onshi Park is the oldest museum in Japan with a history of 150 years, which was born in 1890, and has been an important and central museum facility that conveys the history and culture of Japan since its opening. However, due to the rapid changes in the environment surrounding art and the diversification of culture in recent years, we are entering a period of great change. Due to the repeated aging and expansion of the museum itself, it is hard to say that it is a facility that can cope with the new era, such as the malfunction of existing facilities and the lack of educational functions.
In addition, Ueno Onshi Park has various cultural facilities such as the National Museum of Western Art and the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, and is a gathering area for art and culture. The current situation where many cultural facilities are scattered in the vast park so as to blend in with the surrounding environment is very attractive, and it is a valuable area even from a global perspective. However, at present, each facility group exists as a single unit, and the cooperation between each building is very weak.
Therefore, when renovating and expanding the Tokyo National Museum, which is the central facility in Ueno Park, and transforming and expanding Japanese art into a museum where you can "appreciate as art" instead of "learning as history". By reconstructing the flow lines and landscapes with the surrounding facilities, we will strengthen cooperation with other facilities and make the entire Ueno Park a world-class cultural and artistic area.

Ueno Park Arts and Culture Forum
-Design of art and cultural activity support facility utilizing Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum-

The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, designed by Kunio Maekawa, located in Ueno Onshi Park, is currently at a turning point as an art museum due to its aging and overlapping functions with other museums, and is considering a new role. There is a need. In the future, it is inevitable that it will be required to respond to such cultural facility construction, and it is necessary to find the architectural value of the deteriorated facility, preserve it, and utilize it to convert it to a construction suitable for the new era. ..
In addition, there are many various cultural facilities in Ueno Park, and it is a gathering area for art and culture. However, each of these facilities exists as an independent unit, and it cannot be said that they are taking advantage of the favorable conditions that they are gathered in the same area. By reconstructing the relationship between these facilities, it may become a stage for more attractive arts and cultural activities.
In this plan, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum was designed, and the existing architecture was utilized and converted into a facility that supports artistic and cultural activities for citizens. Then, he considered the cultural facilities in and around Ueno Park as one big facility, and presented the landscape design of the park to form a new Ueno original arts and culture zone (Ueno Park Arts and Culture Forum). The newly converted Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum will complement the functions of the surrounding facilities and will further revitalize the entire Ueno Park as the core of the Ueno Park Arts and Culture Forum.

The 4th POLUS-Study / Architectural Design Competition
Now that wraps the storehouse, the future that wraps the present


Take care of what is already there. It's not necessarily a story that looks to the past. To cherish something that is originally there means to make something that will be cherished in the future if you turn it over. I want to keep it even if the times change. Even if the original use becomes meaningless, I would like to continue using it instead of other uses.
Let's make something that seems like that. Originally made for the purpose of fire protection, it has an attractive architecture. We will leave such a storehouse and create a small town. What kind of use should the dozo be used for? What can a small town do without a dozo?

Not just dozo. 100 years later, apart from the dozo, I want to keep the "something" I'm making now. What is that "something"? What kind of charm does that "something" have? Imagine a town where the past, the present, and the future overlap. I look forward to your ideas.

Algorithmic Architecture

Algorithm architecture is a design method that uses information processing technology and involves fine discrete processes with fine resolution, and redefines the relationship between nature and humans, and the relationship between nature and act = artificial construction. Nature is an infinite continuum, but when human interpretation is added to it in the process of design, it is inevitably "discretized" into finite elements. An algorithm is also a method for discretizing and understanding nature, but unlike the conventional coarse resolution discretization process up to modern times, it discretizes nature with finer resolution and nature as a continuum. It is an attempt to get as close as possible to itself.
